Ashover On Air Again!

Monday, December 1st, 2008

To co-incide with the ALRS’ relaunch of the Rainbow Appeal for the ‘Where the Rainbow Ends’ Cafe (watch local and railway press for reports!) our President Robert Gratton has kindly agreed to appear on BBC Radio Derby with an exciting update!

The interview is to be recorded later this month and exact details of when it will air will be posted on here as soon as they become available. With the recent completion of A1 60163 Tornado, preserved railways are featuring highly in the press at the moment (long may this continue), so while the public imagination is alight now is the time to press forward with our appeal! It’s time to bring the Rainbow back to Ashover!

Anyone who can help with the appeal in any way should contact myself, (Nicola Fox) at
